2021 upgraded everyday carry gear

This personally curated collection of 2021’s must-have everyday carry essentials is here to make life better. I’m talking tangibly better. As in you wake up in the morning and reach for your everyday carry essentials and favorite outfit and you take all of the guesswork out of the day. You just get going and when life tosses you some curveballs you’re ready for anything. Boom. It’s that easy. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links throughout this article!

First up is the G-Shock GBX100-2 Watch in Blue-Green ($160) which is an offshoot of their classic DW-5600 series with stainless steel added for a sharp new look. This watch is a BEAST. It is resistant against electric shock, gravity, low temperatures, vibration, water, and impact. It’ll will hold up to anything you throw its way and look great every single day.

You’re going to love the Bill Ringa Ease Lambswool Indoor/Outdoor Slipper ($135) which come in two colorways to choose from. The 100% natural felted lambswool uppers wick moisture for dry, comfortable feet. These indoor/outdoor slippers feature lexible latex rubber soles built for outdoor use and a shock-absorbing polyurethane insole with felted wool top layer. They’re easy on and easy off, built for comfort and they look great.

It’s hard to overstate how much I’ve worn the Lululemon At Ease Hoodie ($148) in the past year. I love this hoodie as much as anything I’ve ever owned. It strikes a perfect balance between stretch, warmth, and comfort. Lululemon says it was designed ‘to move with you’ and it’s hard to describe that without putting it on but the four-way stretch fabric never holds you back and it just feels great in a range of weather. I wear it from like 40 to 70 degrees out. It also comes in a few different colors to shop from.

You can pair that hoodie with the Marine Layer Yoga Joggers ($98) which come in Black, Grey, or Green. These are also made with a four-way stretch fabric and they’re comfortable enough for lounging around on the couch all day or you can wear them while working out. The fabric is carbon-peached for an ultra soft feel.

This Helle Knives Kletten Pocket Knife ($199) is an heirloom-quality knife that’s built to last you a lifetime and one that you can pass on to the next generation. It is handmade in a third-generation, family-owned factory in Norway and the Kebony scales are made from specially treated Norgwegian maple that’s extremely durable. The scales will develop a lovely grey patina if exposed to the elements, or you can maintain the dark wood color with regular oiling.

The Fish Hook Key Ring ($20) is a Huckberry original that’s made right here in the USA. It’s ideal for saving pocket space and the matte black brass is both lightweight and durable.

The United By Blue High Fold Waffle Beanie ($28) comes in Burgundy, Black, or Grey. This stylish waffle knit beanie locks in the warmth and it’s made from recycled materials. And for every product sold, United by Blue removes 1 pound of trash from the ocean so you can feel good about buying this!

The Magpul DAKA Everyday Wallet is a steal at just $25 but there are only a few left in stock so if you want one you’ll need to act fast. This thin profile slim wallet has a windowed ID slot, holds between three and seven cards and cash, and it’s designed from polymer infused textile material that’s oil, water, dirt, and stain resistant.

We round it out today with the Nite Ize S-Biner #3 ($6) which is a complete and total steal at only six bucks. This high-quality stainless steel carabiner is built for hanging keys, camping gear, water bottles, and adjoining two items together. Six bucks!

Last up is the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24L Backpack ($165) which you see here in an Indigo colorway but it comes in three other colors as well. This weather-resistant backpack is built to keep your gear dry and safe while providing enough storage space for daily use as a backpack, gym bag, or a weekender/carry-on bag when you’re traveling. The versatility and ruggedness of this backpack makes it an exceptional choice.
